Festival at the Welly

Wellington Brewery held their annual Cask Festival today – a collection of inspiration, collaboration, and creative brewing. How creative?  Some of the casks contain pomegranate, sumac, prickly pears, and Lego candy [you can re-read that last one if you like].  It really is a great party. There seems to be an absence of Jalepeno and Ghost pepper this year – which is okay because last year the Ghost pepper stout almost made me barf – for reals.

I learned that a good comment, when you don’t know what you’re talking about is “”Fresh mown hay maybe?” Thanks Brother-in-Spain-who-was-in-Guelph.

And cask fests aren’t only about beer.  The Sumac infused Sumacintosh by West Ave actually tasted of ketchup chips and tahiti treat – it was soooo good.

You also kick your kid brother’s butt at old school pinball [time and time again].

Eat foods from the 39 Carden Street food truck

Ask two people you don’t know to put their heads in the cask buddy photo thingy, so that you don’t feel silly on your own.

and play some bean bag slant board – the game really is this easy.
